The Wooden Churches of the Slovak part of Carpathian Mountain Area include two Roman Catholic, three Protestant and three Greek Orthodox churches built between the 16th and 18th centuries.

Together these form a UNESCO World Heritage Site noted for its evidence of coexistence of different religious faiths within a small territory of central Europe. Interiors are decorated with paintings on the walls and ceilings and other works of art that enrich the cultural significance of the properties.

The wooden churches represent one of the best examples of European wooden religious architecture from the late Middle Ages to the end of 18th century. Their characteristic appearance, and construction derive from earlier local traditions, partially influenced by professional architectural concepts of Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque styles.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.
